If by "common web technologies" you mean mostly non-standard or experimental technologies then yes.

Lets not forget that it was Google that forked WebKit resulting in duplicated effort to implement various features. Google also loves to ship stuff that isn't actually standardized yet (which is fine) but today's web developers go whine about Safari not supporting it yet. No shit Sherlock, it's your own myopic view.

Only testing in Chrome is as bad as only testing in IE 6 in 2006.

Most of the "experimental" features we whine about are supported by all vendors, save for Apple (Firefox, Chrome, Opera and freaking IE). It's a definite pattern: Safari is last to implement features, if at all.
